J-Hey is doing good things on and off the field.

Chicago Cubs outfielder Jason Heyward has donated $100,000 to the University of Chicago Medicine to help health care workers (50K) and also to assist the COVID-19 tracing program in Chicago (50K).

“Through this donation, I want to help ease the personal burdens on our healthcare heroes, and support efforts aimed at reducing the spread of COVID-19, especially in vulnerable communities hit hard by the virus,” Heyward said in a statement via the Chicago Tribune.

Great job by Heyward to help out during this different time as the country still battles COVID-19.
